I arrived at Frankfurt Airport around 10:00pm on Lufthansa from Zurich. All Lufthansa flights operate out of Terminal 1 in Frankfurt, the same terminal where My Cloud Transit Hotel is located. There is a slight problem though: you need to be leaving or arriving at the non-Schengen B-gates to access to hotel. Luckily, I had a connecting flight the next morning to Bangalore. This allowed me to clear passport control without a problem.
When I stayed here, the hotel was only a few weeks old so signage was quite limited. I assume this has been resolved by now though.
The lobby of the hotel, an elevator ride up from terminal level, was light and refreshing after a long day of travel.
I was quickly checked-in and led to my room. On the way, I noticed that there were vending and coffee machines in the lobby. Most items were reasonably priced.
I was staying in an outward facing room with a view of the tarmac.
Prices are charged per hour, which is useful since you can customize it for your layover. However, the prices are quite insane, especially for short stays. You definitely have to value convenience over saving ~€100 to stay somewhere else.
The room was small but practical. To the left of my room was the bathroom, which had see-through glass around it. There was a cool cloud design to remind me of my whereabouts. 😉
Meanwhile, the right side had a desk, a sink and some hotel information.
Finally, the bed was up against the windows and can sleep two people if you’re willing to squeeze.
There were electronic window shades that blocked out all the light (and the airplanes). 🙁
On the nightstand, there was room for electronics to charge during the night.
I also had a look at one of the inward facing rooms. If you’re spending €200+ for a night here, you’ll definitely want to pay the slight premium for an outward facing room.
At the end of the hallway, there was a distant view of the runways.
The new My Cloud Transit Hotel offers convenient airside overnights in modern, but small rooms. The pricing is definitely on the steep side. You really have to value a good night’s sleep over saving money. For all the avgeeks, try to get a room facing the Z-gates to maximize your airplane view. You’re welcome. 😉
